  1. You can spend gold at vending machines for weapons and ammo; buy items from NPCs, or hire them; upgrade weapons to better rarities at upgrade benches. I tend to run short range panic weapons in slot 1 (usually an SMG this season, the shotguns aren’t really working out for me), ranged weapon slot 2 or 3 (AR), long range weapon or utility item slot 3-4 and heals slot 5.
  2. Try it without the HDMI switcher. They can be a bit weird. I’ve had one that worked fine for years, then one day I couldn’t play blu rays on the Xbox one without ridiculous audio delay. Tore my hair out trying to find out what was going on; eventually it turned out to be the - previously unflappable - HDMI switch.
  3. I just bought a 3D printer, was wondering if there was a thread - guess this is it! Some amazing prints there, I won’t be attempting anything on that scale but looking for some cool small things to have a play with
  4. The Fortnite gods were with us last night for sure! Nice to get some games where we didn’t feel outmatched, even more of the games we didn’t win weren’t overly sweaty!
  5. I thought the last one was better, but I do like the octopus back bling!
  6. The addition of mantling has really helped against hotel builders, too. Can’t outbuild them? Climb their structure. Doesn’t help against mad skilled editors, but it does level the playing field somewhat.
  7. My Game Pass subscription is due to expire in less than a week, I wasn’t going to renew it - this might change my mind!
  8. It could be to do with streaming; I know when I started using GeForce Now on my iPhone, I was getting into lobbies with lots of bots, whereas using the same account on PC it was the usual hellscape of sweats.
  9. Lend someone your Xbox and get them to do it for you?
  10. Best not to cancel it immediately, let it run on until just into the next month so you get that month’s skin as well. Just remember to cancel it within 30 days.
  11. That was great, loved every bit of it.
  12. Have to admit that totally flew over my head. I hadn’t made any connection at all between the massacre at the temple and grown up Reva. And you can put me in the “she’s fine” camp too, really not getting the negativity people are saying…
  13. The clones didn’t have free will did they, they were hard wired to obey order 66 regardless of whether they were decent sorts or not. And the scene showed that they were discarded by the empire once they’d served their purpose.
  14. Well, I’ve watched the first two eps, and I’ve really enjoyed it. The forest chase was embarrassing, but other than that there’s been nothing that broke me out of the moment. Was that Taika Waititi or a low rent version in ep 2? Either way, I quite liked that character.
  15. Wow, glad I got it yesterday then! (To get the film one to work, you just had to start downloading a demo.) (If it makes you feel better I didn’t get a free £4 though.)
  16. Think it said it could be up to 30 days after the event - no idea why it would have to take that long.
  17. There’s some free stuff if you sign up to the official Italian discord, too; it’s… a bit feckin’ complicated, to be honest. Two emojis and a wrap, but you have to keep track of your progress through a series of five quests manually. Eh. If you can be arsed, this video explains how to do it.
  18. I just finished this, it was indeed excellent.
  19. Free stuff! https://fortnite.playstation.com/dashboard You need a PSN account to participate, but you can just create one on the Sony website, then link it in your Epic account settings, and it’ll work on any platform once that’s done (so it seems) - no PlayStation required.
  20. Yep really want Robocop but I’ve only got 5 vbucks at the moment!! I’m also well off the pace in terms of reaching level 200. With only 17 days to go I’m only in the 120’s. Easiest way to ensure I get there without too much stressful grind would be to buy the Omega Knight level-up pack, but I resent having to earmark vbucks I don’t currently have for a skin I don’t particularly want. I’d rather spend them on Robocop. I keep forgetting to log in to Save the World to progress the daily rewards, as well; it was smart of Epic to move it off the login screen, bet they’ve significantly reduced the vbucks they were doling out from that.
  21. I enjoyed that! Thought it ended very abruptly, though.
  22. Just found it via Reddit that Fortnite is playable over xcloud! This is useful for a couple of reasons: 1. it’s another way to play Fortnite on iOS devices! GeForce Now was working ok when I needed it, but you had to get into the beta for that. Maybe xcloud will work better, or have a better control scheme? Good to have options, anyway. 2. if you have the Master Chief or Gears of War skins, but don’t have a next-gen Xbox, just launching Fortnite via xcloud unlocks the exclusive black styles for them!
  23. I still prefer building overall, but don’t mind the zero build modes - will often drop into a few no-build matches of the regular mode is proving too sweaty. Totally agree, the clambering is a great addition. With a few ramps and some climbing I can compete with someone who’s building a skyscraper, in fact usually you end up on top of them!
